When Someone You Love Needs a Choice


Abortion Anesthesia

The IV sedation we use is designed to make you feel drifty and dreamy during the abortion. It is very strong, but short acting. Most patients report no recall of the procedure after it is over. This is due to the type of sedation used in our clinics.

Because your safety is of the utmost importance, it is imperative that you do NOT eat or drink anything at least 3 hours prior to your arrival.

Sedation during the procedure is optional. Some women choose to have their abortion without sedation. Feel free to ask one of our staff members about the risks and benefits of the sedation when you schedule your appointment, or upon your arrival at our facility.
